[ applause ] >> romney has not spent much time or money. he slipped in the national polls to 4.1 points behind the president. eight points in the keystone state according to the real clear politic average of recent survey but hopeing for a surprise update. >> obama campaign thinks pennsylvania is in their pocket and they don't need
romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is expectations, so much of a political debate like this. one of the president's advisers the other day talking about, you know, the president's so loquacious. he's got to keep his answers tighter. and by turns, mitt romney's camp talking about the president's gifted oratorical skills. so they both can't be right, but i think both sides are relatively confident going into this. >> to hear both of them tell it, the other guy is the best debater since abe lincoln himself. mike viqueira, thank you so much. appreciate your time, sir. there are, of course, great expectations on both sides for next week's debate. the pressure is really on for mitt romney to knock it out of the park, as he entrance the debate, trailing in nine of
, practicing on those debates. of course, the person who is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996. that was bill welles. so it's going to be intense, and as you mentioned, he leaves tomorrow, has one event on the ground when he leaves for nevada. then he goes to ground, training at altitude, because the debate is in the mile-high city of denver. but we don't expect to see much of him. he's going to be doing a lot of practicing for that debate wednesday night. >> this is president obama's first debate since 2008. governor romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both
. senior adviser david axelrod. we expect mitt romney to be prepared disciplined and aggressive debater. governor pawlenty said he is as good as it gets in debating. maybe this is why the romney campaign predicted he will turn in a campaign changing performance such as ronald reagan's in 1980. here is the truth about obama and romney, neither a stellar debater. obama didn't shine in the democratic primary debates, biden won them. that's why obama picked biden. candidate obama had a tendency to ramble in the debates, got better during mccain one on ones. while romney did well in this season's gop debates, had rough performances, bet you $10,000 he did. romney performances, the unspoken body language that the camera captured, they were brutal against ted kennedy. ivy league will enjoy biden versus ryan more. trust me. >>> turning back to the brand new battleground polls. there's a different pattern emerging, president obama is ahead in new hampshire, tighter in nevada and north carolina. joining me, director of the marist poll. good to see you in person. >> welcome to the home of the new
speaker, he will do just fine. >> mitt romney has an advantage, he has been through 20 debates in the primaries in the last year. >> barack obama is an effective debater. >> governor romney has been practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he is putting into the debates. >> hasn't had a debate against a democrat in over ten years i guess it would be probably 2002. >> i have never been in a presidential debate like this, it will be a new experience. >> is your head spinning? expectations came at a fevered pitch. yesterday afternoon we got memos. first one was a memo from romney senior adviser beth myers that couldn't stop praising the president. president obama is a universely aclaimed public speaker. voters already believe by a 25 point margin that president obama is likely to do a better job in the debates, given president obama's natural gifts and extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the debate stage. this morning, the obama campaign countered with its memo. senior adviser david axelrod. we expect mitt romney to be prepared
that quiet. we have spotted senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney in the mock debate sessions for the president in the las vegas area. he has been spotted in the lobby of the hotel, with reading glasses and a pile of papers, going through this like it is a final exam and researching every last bit. the president, when he delivered pizza to campaign volunteers to show he has a calm, cool image headed into the debate, he made clear he also things this is like a final exam. he has been holed up, long hours, inside, dealing with a big workload. >> it is all very nice. although they keeping me indoors all the time, that is a drag, they are making me do my homework. >>reporter: the president says he is doing his homework with 8.1 percent unemployment, the deficit, and now we have new numbers because of the start of the fiscal year, reaching $1.3 trillion although the president promised to cut the budget if half in his first term and balance it down the road. that has not happened. this is a debate about domestic issues. that will be on the agenda tomorrow night. trace? >>trace: we k
until the first of three presidential debates between president obama and governor romney. a national poll out today finds that 93 percent of likely voters say they do plan to watch the debate. the same survey finds that president obama ahead nationally 49 percent to 45 percent which is just outside the margin of error. those polled rank the economy as the most important issue. on that, the two candidates are in a tie. governor romney leads when it comes to the handling of the budget deficit. however, the president is ahead on every other issue including health care and national security. we have team fox coverage. carl cameron has the latest from the romney campaign. first, we go to ed henry in las vegas. what do we know about the president's debate prep? >>reporter: they have tried to keep that quiet. we have spotted senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney in the mock debate sessions for the president in the las vegas area. he has been spotted in the lobby of the hotel, with reading glasses and a pile of papers, going through this like it is a final exam and researching every

not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president will use his ample rhetorical gifts to attack romney. obama won the debates against john mccain if 2008 by double digits. it is not just the romney team that is trying to lower expectations. check out what obama's senior campaign advisor said recently. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. he even bragged that he was declared the winner in 16 of those debates. so i think in that sense having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> want to bring in our jim accosta, who is covering the romney campaign in wayne, i
and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst steel says that what really happened when bain capital ca
, then mitt romney needs two things to get back in this game. one i think he can do and a good debate performance. make no mistake about it, mitt romney is a good debater. he won virtually every republican debate except south carolina where newt gingrich started off hot and stayed hot. mitt romney is disciplined, focused in a debate he sounds and loos like a president as he did in his interview with brine williams on education nation yesterday. he will have a good debate performance. two, he needs an -- some form of implosion or serious mistake by the obama campaign or some international event that doesn't rally people around the president but focuses people on a perceived weakness. i don't think either of those are likely to happen. in terms of a mistake by the obama campaign, they've always been fairly safe and cautious. if this were a sporting event, i would say they're running out the clock right now. >> running out the clock and, in fact, perhaps too cautious. you've got hillary clinton going to, perhaps, a dozen meetings with foreign leaders and president obama already out of he
that went. plus, managing expectations before the big presidential debate. >> the president is obviously a very eloquent, gifted speaker. >> mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates through the primaries. >> shepard: tonight, how both men are preparing for their first faceoff in prime time. >> plus, signals the syrian regime is is shifting its chemical weapons. >> there has been some intelligence that with regards to some of these sites that there has been some movement. >> important because, remember this? >> a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. >> shepard: so now what? and a plane headed toward mount every rest reportedly hits a bird and goes down hard. >> when the plane initially crashed, there were still people inside alive and screaming out for help. >> shepard: tonight, disaster near the top of the world. but first from fox this friday night, chemical weapons on the move in syria. defense secretary leon panetta now confirms new intelligence now shows movement at some of
. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with one of the states that in just 41 days could decide the presidential election, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now,
to predictions -- i think this will come up in the debate. not because mitt romney will bring it up, but because he will be asked about it by one of the moderators. but the romney campaign has shown no signs of pulling back on this. i got a mail -- i live in virginia -- i got a mail at my house for my daughter, who registered to vote a week ago. it repeated all the lines in the welfare at. i think the romney campaign has found a message that it once to -- wants to keep hitting. i think that will come up in the debate. we will hear from obama. initially, we saw this in the polls, this has resonated, their traditional scare seniors about medicare tactics. that has been working really well. so i think obama will bring that up. one thing we will hear is the phrase that romney would end medicare's guarantee, which is a phrase the democrats have liked to use recently. we have raided that half-true for two reasons. one, it is not like it really has a guarantee now. congress can change the medicare benefits any time it wants to. it frequently has. now, romney would change the structure in which people w
it will relate to the first presidential debate? >> i hope that mitt romney stands strong and talks about foreign policy. because two weeks before september 11th, we heard at the dnc, you and i both did together. hey, gm is alive and osama bin laden is dead, that's not foreign policy so mitt romney has a grand opportunity to raise his poll numbers by putting obama's feet to the fire. >> there's only one candidate who politicized the death of four american heroes, you know, late at night on september 11th and he was really rebuked by many leading republicans for how, you know, just not ready for prime time he was. i think he showed his lack of depth and experience on foreign policy clearly on september 11th, but i think, you know, all of the calls and points to that this is a coverup is-- it's really laughable in a sense. i don't want to, you know, take away from the seriousness of the loss of american life, but you know, my mom always says, i look for love in all the wrong places. republicans and angela, you and your counterparts are looking for a coverup in all the wrong places. >> i have not sa
" is someone who's had plenty of experience debating mitt romney. former presidential candidate newt gingrich. mr. speaker, thanks so much for coming into "the situation room." >> thank you. glad to be with you. >> want to show you poll of polls as we call it in ohio and florida. ohio likely voters 51% said they'd vote for obama. 44% for romney. and the poll of polls september 16th through the 24th in florida, 50% said they'd vote for the president, 45% for mitt romney. why do you think it is that mitt romney doesn't seem to be resonating in these critical states at least so far? >> well, i think he has three or four big challenges. one is that for a long period the obama campaign dramatically outspent romney in resiesly those states driving home their image of who romney is. the second is that the romney campaign is yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear crisp way the difference between romney and obama. and i think that frankly is a problem. and there's an ironic third problem. both these states have republican governors. both these governors have been doi

in the first debate because it is their first time to stand shoulder to shoulder with the president and have a one to won -- one comparison. and governor romney is saying that president obama devastated john mccain and one poll said john mccain lost by 33 points in that particular debate. both sides are saying opposition is superior. romney understands this is a big deal. the entire month of october will be dedicated to debates. it could be the most important time of the whole campaign and imaren't voters with what could be the biggest area of information. >>shepard: we will look at the latest polls. this are a lot of them out now. more on how the campaigns are trying to tone down expectations for the presidential debate. if you are a candidate you want expectations as low as possible so when you get up there you look better than you were expected to look, right?

than that -- more of that in the debates. president obama and governor romney have different views about where to take this country internationally. host: where you expecting from the speech by the iranian leader today? guest: mach mod ahmadinejad -- mahmoud ahmadinejad is a fool. er.is a israel pahat denies the holocaust. he lost most of his power. he is not the most significant leader in iran. i would expect a lot of lies about the united states. iran has very low support. they have support from hezbollah and the syrian government. most countries want nothing to do with the iranians. they have been violating their commitments on their nuclear enrichment programs. it is a program on the defensive. president obama has been doing a good job of pushing the iranians into a corner and we should continue that policy matter who wins the election and prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. host: susan from new york. caller: good morning. their comments are very great. i have two questions, one regarding libya. one is regarding libya. the you think the al qaeda attacks and on the guy t
that are more befitting a poorly researched high school debate. the reason the romney campaign at the end of the day is stumbling so seriously is that mitt can't quite figure out what he believes and even if he knew, he wouldn't be able to summon the courage to say it outloud. does mitt romney really believe that president obama thinks ambassador stevens' death was just a bump in the road? romney's spinelessness and on obfuscation of the treat speaks of a lack of respect for the voting public. he feels he can talk down to us, woo us without providing any answers and in the end be smug enough to make his innermost thoughts apparent only to those who pay $50,000 for a lunch to hear them. there's a lesson in all of this. democracy works. the public senses the lack of core mitt. it senses the lack of respect. it senses the lack of strength and it senses the lack of character all of these voids manifest about mitt romney himself. that's my view. now to my point.

the invasion of normandy took less preparation than romney putting into the debates. let's get real for a moment. who is the better debater really? >> they're both mediocre debaiters. barack obama didn't win debates, joe biden won. actual debates, harvard and yale coaches enjoy will be paul ryan and joe biden. they'll be better. romney is good in a group setting, hasn't done a lot of one on one. the president, john mccain wasn't the best debater either. >> i talked to nathan sproul, how much ground romney has to gain, could be as much as seven points, that's a lot to gain through a debate performance. two guys can be well prepared, one sitting president. >> he did against bush. >> it is not the debate, what is it for mitt romney in the last five weeks of the campaign to change it. >> i think he has to go big, has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about the medicare plan paul ryan put in place, it is beginning to hurt them in battleground states. i don't think ther

day. >> still plenty of time to go. three debates. a lot can clearly happen. i haven't seen the romney folks put a lot of money in advertising in pennsylvania. that's a sure sign that they're maybe not convinced it's really in play. >> we'll see if that changes. >> yeah. that could change. you're right. thanyou very much. today is the first day votes can be cast in one of the battleground states that will help decide the 2012 presidential election. our chief national correspondent john king is in iowa right now where in person absentee voting actually started today. it's pretty early, but they're voting not only in iowa but in other parts of the country as well, john. >> reporter: wolf, 35 states plus the district of columbia allow some form of in person early voting. as you noted, the iowa voting kicked off today. we're here in iowa city. we saw a pretty healthy line. mostly students, mostly obama supporters . mostly obama supporters on day one. now, republicans say that's overblown. if you've made up your mind to vote even before the debates, you are going to be for one candidate or
much debate between the republican candidate mitt romney and president obama -- we will open up the debate and expand the debate as we so often do on "democracy now, "to a third party candidates. we will be in denver, to and we will have third-party candidates responding to the same questions being put to mitt romney and president obama. we will broadcast democracy now.org and on radio as well. you raised the issue of the critical vote as we traveled through pennsylvania. a whole issue of voter suppression and having been in charlotte, a great civil-rights city, where the students from the historical black college in 1960 set up a lunch counter in to grant them and yet, what do we see today? state after state, efforts to suppress voting rights instead of expanding them. not enough people vote in this country. in pennsylvania, there is legislation now on the books that could disenfranchise between 750,000-1 million people. president obama won by 600,000 boats in pennsylvania last time. this really does determine the election. i don't care who you are for. this will determine the
reporter -- robert portman is helping romney prepare for. the for the first debate is in denver, so look for our lookon c-span.org. freddie is a democratic caller in lanham, maryland. caller: thank you very much, c- span. the un is a very good entity. but the main problem is the united states and israel. israel is the biggest stone in the shoes of the united states. the president of the united rael.s not bowing to is mitt romney wants to start another war with iran. host: this on twitter -- the president will be giving his address to the united nations this morning around 10:00 a.m. eastern time. look for coverage on c-span. governor mitt romney will be at the clinton global initiative this morning giving a talk about foreign affairs at 9:00 a.m. eastern time. look for our coverage on c-span 2. president obama will travel over to the clinton global initiative to give his speech around noon eastern time. go to c-span.org for details of coverage of those events in new york. let's go to new york state, democratic caller, david. caller: good morning. i understand that the united nations has
point of the debate. it's entirely possible that romney will run as any republican challenger ever. pulling on the whites bush '88 come all 56 to 61% of whites range. romani could come right in that range and lose, and i think that is down to -- it should precipitate a conversation in the party. this is the last time anyone will try to do this that is entirely on the back. it's unrealistic when 62 or 63, but the existing collision is so dependent on the community that are uneasy with the change that they are just paralyzed in the intellectual understanding the have to reach out to the hispanics and difficulty they are fighting it in degrees note here at the end. the republican platform in addition to everything else it says about immigration, so any straight defeat does state that provides should be barred from all federal higher education money which means under the republican platform every kid in texas couldn't get a pell grant. so, that is sort of what they are grappling with, versus if you talk to karl rove awarded gillespie and the understanding that we have ways to reach out
